Little bluestem is a dominant grass in North American prairies, especially on drier sites, on sandy or gravelly soil, and on bluffs. If given sun and room to establish, it will develop dense clumps with deep roots. It is beautiful in the fall with fluffy seed heads, and reddish to bluish stems. In winter, the colorful stems contrast beautifully with snowy landscapes.
